As they explore the work of J. R. R. Tolkien, hosts Alan Sisto and Shawn E. Marchese welcome readers of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, and the other works in the Middle-earth legendarium to tune in as they discuss favorite passages from the books and films that started the worldwide fantasy phenomenon.

Alan and Shawn engage in plenty of in-depth study of Tolkien's books, but with a healthy dose of self-effacing humor, pop-culture references, and bad puns. These are the two guys you'd want to hang out with at a pub and talk Tolkien with.

Engaging, insightful, hilariously funny ...

If you want it all: fairy kings, killer queens, ogre battles, dragon attacks, all sprinkled with a kind of magic, these two fairy fellers deliver their master-stroke with a flick of the wrist each Sunday like the true champions of Tolkien podcasts.

Lovely insight into Tolkien´s worlds

An exceptional podcast and a great source of information on Tolkien´s outstanding work. I have loved every single single episode so far. Sean&Allen display great knowledge of the material as well a good level of preparedness, leading the listener through the text and pointing out all the relvant bits. Even if you are already familiar with the books themselves (as I am) you will sure see some connctions or exciting detals that will be new to you. 5/5

Phenomenal

Just found the podcast a couple of weeks ago and am now binge-listening.
I jumped in at the hobbit and will be starting Lord of the Rings soon, which ties in nicely with me listening to the audiobooks.
Alan and Shawn bring a great humor to
the show and have a wonderful way to explain and explore Tolkien. I love the “philology fair” segment, which makes me appreciate language on a new level. You give me courage to want to tackle the “The Silmarillion”.
So, thank you so much Alan and Shawn for all the love and work you put into the show - I can hear every ounce and every hour. So please keep it up, I can’t wait for your take on “The children of Hurin”
